SpikeExtractors is a package of the SpikeInterface project designed to address issues of file format compatibility within spike sorting pipelines without creating yet another file format.
SpikeExtractors provides functionality to extract data from, convert between, and interface with many common file formats in extracellular recording. File types that can be utilized with SpikeExtractors include recorded dataset files, sorted dataset files, and probe files (.csv and .prb).
To get started with SpikeExtractors, you can install it with pip:
pip install spikeextractors
You can also get SpikeExtractors through the spikeinterface package:
pip install spikeinterface
You can also install SpikeExtractors locally by cloning the repo into your code base. If you install SpikeExtractors locally, you need to run the setup.py file.
git clone https://github.com/SpikeInterface/spikeextractors.git cd spikeextractors python setup.py install
